My daughter and I spent three nights in this wonderful inn, and it couldn't have been a more wonderful experience. As others have said, Philippe and Christine are gracious hosts, and the property exudes both history and home. Christine's breakfasts were not only the best breakfasts we had during our trip to France, but some of the best meals. Loches... More

I can't say enough to recommend this place. Philippe and Christine are impeccable hosts, and their passion for the property and the area's history is contagious. We stayed in the Jacques Coeur room, which was incredibly comfortable and beautifully decorated (you could spend hours noting the small touches). Loches itself is charming, with plenty to do if you don't feel... More

What a marvellous B and B experience. True class, true hospitality without being intrusive. The most beautiful house, we had the smallest room as we booked quite late but it was absolutely perfect.

It was so good we stayed on and on and on only leaving after five nights as the room had been booked by others. Location is excellent with secure parking for our motorcycles. The Breakfast is superb and our hosts made us very welcome. A very well deserved 5 star find.

We really enjoyed every part of our trip to Loches. What a beautiful town! We stayed in Balzac's Library overlooking the garden and the village beyond. The rooms here are all beautifully appointed and at the end of a day exploring the Loire Valley it is a wonderful base to come back to and relax.
